January 21st, 2011 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

monkey with gunAfter a 14-hour writing marathon yesterday,  I’m feeling a bit delirious, but discovered some great comic relief buried within this morning’s e-mail offerings.  trippin’s producer Agustin, who is first and foremost an anthropologist, has a new book coming out (well, several actually – he’s a prolific fellow, that one) including one entitled MONKEYS ON THE EDGE.  Folks at the publishing house were so delighted by the title, they come up with this concept for the cover.    We so need them for our next movie poster!

Horror Blast in Oklahoma

December 9th, 2010 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

devi snively chris lamartinaTalk about too much of a good thing!  First, I was asked to be a judge at my beloved Dragon*Con, but alas just couldn’t afford the hefty hotel fees.  We were also to screen at Horrorfind which is a super fun event as well and where I knew friends I haven’t seen in ages would be in attendance.  mae west frogBut  like Mae West, “Between two evils (or 3 and make them horror fests in this case), I always pick the one I never tried before.”  And I’m glad I did.  Because running concurrently was the Oklahoma Horror Fest, where I ultimately opted to go (courtesy of Delta air miles) and had a blast!
